Remember how I was waking up around 4:30 pretty much every morning?
Well, thanks to a lovely thing called TIME CHANGE, it’s now been 3:30.
I laid in bed, awake for an hour this morning, determined not to let it get the best of me.
And where did that get me?
Hungry and bored by 4:30 and therefore now sitting in the living room all by my lonesome on my laptop, trying to kill a bit of time before I feel tired again. *sigh*
Something about pregnancy definitely makes me an insomniac. Truthfully, it hasn’t been all that bad. I even sort of enjoy this little bit of time where I know both boys are snuggled in bed, sleeping sweetly, where it’s so quiet that I can hear 5 different clocks ticking, where I get a little bit of “just mama” time. Where I can write a blog. Where I can work on Christmas presents. Where I can watch some early morning episodes of Friends to make me feel a little less lonely in the house. It’s really kind of a sweet time and I know I should just savor this last bit of “me” time, before I have another little precious soul in the house who will need me to be up at 3:30 am for their sake, not for my own.
Remember that I mentioned a few friends from church were throwing a triple baby shower for me and two other girlfriends? That shower happened last Sunday. It was a lovely party of some of the dearest people in my life. My church family (we’re a small church – probably 60-70 people if everyone showed up.) is made up of some of the best friends I’ve ever had in it. The ladies all range in early twenties to early forties, but you’d never know there was a 20 year age gap amongst us. We all have young kids and are in similar places in life and these women are seriously the best. I am so thankful for them and their friendship! There was about 12 of us at the shower, which was just perfect for having a lovely relaxing time with friends.
My friends Christine, Enez and Gina threw the shower for myself, Janie (due a couple weeks before me) and Jackie (due right around the same time as me). I never thought to pull out my camera and take any pictures, but Gina posted several photos of the shower on FB the other day and I asked if I could share the photo’s she took.
They came up with a theme of “She’s About to Pop!” and used it creatively throughout the party! Here are Gina’s photo’s of the shower:
Anyway, that’s that. Our life has been blessed with parties for the last week. 🙂
And now it is a quarter after 5 and I’d better at least try to fall asleep again before Zeek wakes up in a couple hours…
(Or something like that…)
